Following the issue of death warrant by the Tada Court, Memon will be hanged on July 30 at 7:00 a.m. in Nagpur Jail. Justice (Retired) P.D. Kode, who gave the death penalty to Memon in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blast case, said that the court’s decision has made the common man retain his faith in the judiciary.
“This is a solace for the common man, who keeps faith in the judiciary, investigative agencies and the government. I am also happy because it seems that finality has been reached. As far as India is concerned, we do not tolerate the people who play with the valuable rights given to our citizens,” he told ANI. ” I think there must be no substance found in the point kept forward by the accused,”he added.
